Good Afternoon Facecrooks!
A NFL player was arrested this past week in Ocala, Florida. Clinton G. Hart, a safety with the St. Louis Rams, was charged with battery against his wife, Kelli Nicole Hart. The altercation stemmed from a message posted to his Facebook account. According to the arrest affidavit, Kelli Hart would not allow Clinton Hart inside her place of business, so he grabbed his wife and the struggle caused her pants to be torn and a small cut on her mouth. Kelli Hart told police that he did not hit her and she doesn’t know how she got the cut on her mouth. Clinton Hart told authorities that the argument was caused by an unknown female that had messaged him on Facebook. Read More
